Earlier this year, America chose lemon as the all-new Glazed Doughnut flavor for Krispy Kreme’s iconic Original Glazed® Doughnut through the brand’s #VoteForGlaze campaign.

“The Lemon Glazed Doughnut embodies so much of what we love about summer – a season we’re just not quite ready to let go of. Bringing back the perfect pairing of zesty fresh lemon and sweet Original Glaze is an awesome way to stretch summer out just a bit longer,” said Alison Holder, head of US Marketing for Krispy Kreme Doughnuts.
